#atozchallenge, Y is for Yankee…

Yvonne was certain that Billy’s family would never love her.  She hadn’t come from old money or belonged to a country club and she didn’t like cornbread or sugar in her iced tea.

She was a perfectly nice girl from the Midwest with a good education, a great job and a love for Billy that would never quit.   But she longed to be part of his family, not just that nice Yankee girl their son married…

Billy pulled her close for a kiss.  “I’m sure they’ll come ’round.  But it’s okay either way, darling, cause we’re our own family now.”

My theme this year is 100 word fiction.  (So, no, don’t count this line.)
